Event Description

Our Bodies, Our Data: a real/virtual event

    The concerns that surround the female body have been at the center of feminist discourses for decades. The internet gave us an opportunity to create the digital body, free of gender in a new borderless space, accompanied by rampant feelings that the age of fixed identities had ended. The image of the female body as a metaphor – for whatever is desired – continues to inspire many feminist artists to experiment with the conceptualization of the female body and gender. But what was experienced as a new freedom of expression in the past has changed drastically within a more commercialized World Wide Web. The internet has become a contested ground for different kinds of representation. What we are experiencing today is a major transformation of our understanding of the body, due to social change as well as technological influences. How do today’s different feminisms react to this digital transformation?
